Pickering Manor Auxiliary gaining momentum in 2022!

    The Pickering Manor Auxiliary has been working hard on reinventing themselves since the long COVID shutdown of Auxiliary Activities. The first board meeting was held on March 7th, 2022. At that time they welcomed their new and old board members.

    The first resident activity the members engaged in was asking Auxiliary members to donate a stuffed bunny to be given to all the residents in April. The Residents were excited to choose a bunny from the vast selection. There were 65 bunnies donated from Auxiliary members and Pickering friends, ensuring each resident had a bunny for themselves or to give to a grandchild.

    In June, the Auxiliary Executive Board hosted a ‘Resident Picnic’ for the apartment residents, cottage residents, and the personal care residents, which was held in the beautiful Personal Care Gardens of Pickering. What a lovely time!

    Most recently, the Auxiliary members hosted a ‘Lemonade Social.’ The Residents sipped on delicious lemonade, listened to music and enjoyed socializing with the members and each other.

    Upcoming fundraising events include an ‘Annual Cocktail Party Fundraiser’ which will be held on the evening of Sunday, September 18th, in the Personal Care Garden of the Yates Pavilion at Pickering Manor.

    Additionally, on September 24th (10:00am – 5:30pm) and 25th (11:00am – 4:00pm) the Auxiliary, in collaboration with J.McLaughlin Clothing, will be hosting a ‘Sip & Shop’ fundraising event to support the Auxiliary’s mission to enhance the lives of residents. Whether you love red, white or rosé – we invite you to sip and shop J.McLaughlin’s classic approach to modern style. Truly a destination for defining style. A portion of the proceeds will support the Pickering Manor Auxiliary.

    Auxiliary President Jane Mahler shares, “We wish to graciously thank everyone who assists us in enriching the lives of our residents with such tremendous love and care!”
